. unpredictable, violent change occurs. that's the world we're in. the minute you read machiavellian you're in our world, the world of the unpredictable. the unforeseeable, the violent, the unforseen. and that seems to me a tremendously powerful and modern aspect of machiavellian. equally at the same time as the qaation shows men are not prisoners of fortune. the whole burden of chapter 25 is to say, yes, stuff happens. the unpredictable occurs. catastrophe occur, the around overflows, men are not prisoners of this. they need not be resigned to their fate. it's a very strong emphasis, i think, professor muir made the point about the tremendous point of will in machiavellian. will against fortune. will against fate, will against chance, will against contingency. these are strong and powerful themes in machiavellian. for tuna does not preach resignation. there's not a line of resignation in machiavellian's writing. politicians, in other words, were people in charge of public affairs in florence cannot predict the unpredictable. they can't be sure when the river is going to overflow. they can put up
the "wall street journal," columnist says something has changed, a line has been crossed. does it feel that way in washington? >> now, i think so republicans learned a pretty good lesson this week. the president overhyped this thing electing like y 2 q, he couldn't back up his -- y2k ands president's bluff. we're not talking about a massive cut here in spending. we're talking about a minor cut in the growth of spending. i think our country wants to see us get serious about spending and i think the party learned a good lesson to stand up to the president, being very clear offering solutions to problems. at the end of the day if the president isn't willing to lead and anything he is interested in campaigning earnings this we have to stick together and show the american people that we're not going to drive this country into the ground. >> dana: one of the things i have seen from democrats and even just outside of the party politics, from the left is that we actually don't have a spending problem. this is a new talking point. just looking at the polls, actually one thing americans can agre
. but this week i think exposed some serious changes, if not a rift within the elder wing -- the elder sort of establishment wing of the republican party in the upper chamber. not just on sequester but with the rand paul talky filibuster. >> i was pleased see that picture because normally there's a democrat standing there getting a scowl. >> i've been on elevators like that myself. you know, i think that, you know, i appreciate what senator mccain and senator graham were trying to say. under no circumstances are americans at home in danger of getting shot by a drone from the u.s. government. however, they continue to be a little bit behind the curve of where a broad swath of the american people are. sure, you know, a large majority of the american people believe that we should use drones to go after terrorists abroad, but they also want our constitution protected, and there's a way to do both. that's what the president has been trying to convey. that's ultimately what the attorney general put in his letter yesterday. >> is he fairly brazen. >> it doesn't make it right. just because they did
signed the gay marriage ban into law now says it should be overturned. why the change of heart? >>> and awkward, party of two. a now "new york times" photographer steven crowley captures john mccain and rand paul only moments after mccain slammed paul's made for television filibuster. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live from washington. the stock market soaring to a new record high. the jobless numbers are at a four-ee low, and the washington post chris joins us now along with greg with the economist and cnbc wr this is your specialty, so let's start with you today. let's get behind the numbers, the good, the bad, and any ugly? >> most of bad. excuse me. mostly good. >> good, good, good. >> no ugly that i can see. the number of jobs created quite a bit mo expecting. if you look over the last few months, it looks like we're sustaining job growth from the 150,000 to 200,000 area. more hours means more income, more spending power, but the main thing -- the main take-away p is what's not happening. we are not seeing the economy crumple even though it was hit with big tax increase

skeptical about this. because of some changes they decided not to change the age at which the medicare changes would begin hitting. republicans have been promising for years now that if you are 55 you will not have to worry about these medicare changes. now the moderates do seem to be on board on the gop conference. host: on the senate side, "the washington times closed what reporting this morning -- it is winning support from other republicans like senator mark o. rubio from florida. talk about that. guest: the senate budget is a little bit more notable in the sense that since 2009 the senate democrats passed the budget. this is going to be a significant political test for them. the senate makes the process more difficult for the democrats over there in the budget speech. they have only a -- they cannot lose a single vote or else the vote would be deadlocked 11-11. patty murray, the chairwoman, has to appease the independent from vermont who causes of the socialist and centrist like mark warner. it is very difficult and they are having trouble over there. the next thing that happens f
francis. i will tell you, the whole world is changing. and thank god for it. >> eric: just absolutely amazing. you served from 93 to 97, there in the vatican, under the clinton administration and you knew pope john paul ii. and you know and have met pope francis. what other parallels are there? do you think this will be a new, invigorated church because of this election? >> i love the simplicity, the humility of pope francis. we have heard some of those things recently in the short period of time he has been pontiff. but those of us who have been around the vatican for a number of years know him and knew his reputation. his reputation was exactly what he is talking about today. impromptu, sim policeic, but profound statements about forgiveness and connecting with people, particularly, eric, connecting with the poor. whoa! that is really sensational. because that's the principle foundation of the catholic faith, social and economic justice. for those of us who have been in politics many years, that's where we cut our teeth, on the catholic teaching of helping the poor, social and econo

, virginia tonight. thanks. >>> now to air travel and the tsa's plan to change the rules back to before 911 and allow people to bring small knives on board aircraft. flight attendants came out against this rule change yesterday. then today the air marshals slammed the decision. nbc's pete williams in our d.c. newsroom with more on this tonight. pete? >> reporter: brian, some family members of people killed on 911 are saying they don't like the idea in addition to the federal air marshals. the tsa announced yesterday that starting april 25th, airline passengers can carry on knives that have folding blades up to about 2 1/3 inches long. slightly more than the height of a dollar bill. knives with longer or locking blades will still be banned. so will box cutters and razor blades. a representative for the nation's federal air marshals who are responsible for in-flight security describes them as being, quote, very upset and says the decision puts them at greater risk. relatives of some of the 9/11 victims say a pocketknife can be just as dangerous as a box cutter and a group representing flight
on a plane, not even those tiny ones, not even nail clippers. that changes next month, when the rules relax and you'll be allowed to bring smile knives on board. airline officials don't like it, flight attendants don't like it. some lawmakers on capitol hill don't like it either. >> the tsa says it's trying to prevent things like a bomb an explosion or a takeover of an aircraft. it says small knives with the current safety precautions on cockpit doors could not cause such a catastrophic problem. but lawmakers, including chuck schumer say small knives are still too dangerous to go on planes and schumer issued this threat to the tsa. >> the tsa refuses to go along. we would very much consider legislation and my guess is it would have large bipartisan support. i don't know anyone who's defended the tsa on this, because it doesn't make any sense. >> you can see what this change is. starting april 25th, can you carry knives this size under 2.6 inches, on to a plane's cabin, the tsa believes with cockpit doors more secure these fives can not friday down a plane. this petition on white house.gov i
